More to follow, but a few to tide you over!

***********EDIT - Inserted by Molly***********
Hey all, I think we had over 26 rigs throughout the day! Post your pics, and at least a pick of your truck with your screen name and your real name... cuz we have a lot of new members and it's hard to keep track of who's-who!

Oh and thanks to those who donated to the tip jar of food.... and helped work on trucks even if they didn't have a project themselves! w00t!

Ah well, if i was going to look bad, at least it was done while enjoying really good food.

Thanks again to Molly and Troy for letting the HOW happen. And especially Molly for keeping us fed through out the day. It was a spectacular display of our Association (club or whatever you want to call us).
And I am extremely happy with my slider project finally getting finished after months of procrastination. I especially thank those who helped with the :welder:. I owe you guys greatly. I did get my weld on, but only for a minute.

My project started out with a quick check to see what we needed to do:

http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg253/KnAph0t0s/HOW%203-8-08/IMG_1297.jpg

Kevin and Troy took on this project like their own:

http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg253/KnAph0t0s/HOW%203-8-08/IMG_1319.jpg

Those two have mastered the weld:

http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg253/KnAph0t0s/HOW%203-8-08/IMG_1322.jpg

They bossed me around and ordered me to keep a grinder in my hand at all times:

http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg253/KnAph0t0s/HOW%203-8-08/IMG_1307.jpg

This was prolly after they saw my welding skills.


We had to do a little extra fabricating and welding thru the night. Eric got pics of me grinding at about 8 in the dark. I think we finished welding the sliders on at about 9 after reseting the circuit prolly 20 times.

Today was the first time I could really see the work.

They look fine from here:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2255.jpg

Driver side weld:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2257.jpg

Passenger side weld or should I say the easy side:
http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2256.jpg

Thanks again for your help.

Today I proceeded to paint them to match the bumpers:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2258.jpg

As well as touching up some rust on the bumpers and body:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2262.jpg

Purty looking bastards:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2264.jpg

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2266.jpg

Done with that crap:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg296/fondilgley/DSCN2268.jpg

Can't wait to see what happens at the next HOW.

I think 39" crawlers would look good on your rig. Those tires with the beadlocks on the 100 are something like 150-200 lbs. I would NEVER want to change one.

fondigley

Those 39's make my tires look stock.

Next weekend might be some downtime for me... I need some rest :D

I really need to do a HOW just for Tippy. That will likely be in Mid April once I have all the gear to start working on her. I am thinking of setting up 4 teams and folks can volunteer if they want.

TEAM CHOP - Cutting the rear top off and then putting diamond plate on, and snaps for a canvas top

TEAM PAINT - Sanding and prepping tippy for MOAB Camo

TEAM 3.4 SWAP - No explanation there!

TEAM EXO - That won;t be till the summer gotta get $$ and steel tubing!

*************
TEAM CHOP and TEAM PAINT can start earlier, TEAM 3.4 SWAP will be the dedicated HOW in Mid April I Hope. So what do you guys think. Should I start a new thread? Should I start a thread for EACH TEAM? Thoughts

Results of the lift enhancement and painting. Clearance from center of hub to fender is 24" front and rear on the driver's side and 24 1/4" front and rear on the passenger side. Perfectly level unloaded front and rear, but still a little lean on the driver's side.

Nice and even front and rear

hey everyone, check out the HOW South poll in the "official club events" section and let me know what you need/want to get done

Yeah Matt's HOW Is coming up just in time. We got a letter from our Homeowners Association. Iknow that Chick acrosse the street complained. So for us any more HOW's have to be small and in our driveway maybe even in our Garage only. LAME huh? I might try and talk to her at some point. Because I could rat on her dogs getting out all the time and shitting everywhere.

And there are so many other folks in our community that break the rules. It;s a starter home neighborhood. What does she expect? Geeze!

Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I have been on here. I saw everyone as I drove by heading back to my friends' place a few blocks up from the HOW. There were a lot of great looking toyotas there! I was the one that drove by and talk to a few of the members in a 07 indigo ink ac around sundown. I would of stayed, but had prior engagements. Here is a pick of my truck:

I will try to make it to the South HOW depending on my work schedule. My name is Nick and yes I have gotten her dirty. Here she is on the Transfer trail w/ the FJ Trail Team last year:

I just now got another ticket from the Condo Ass'n for winding my new winch rope on. I have to go stand tall with my landlord at the next meeting to find out how much the fine is. As far as they know I was just re-winding it, so I may skate.

Fuck it I'm moving to the country.

I feel ya DON and Molly/Troy. Thank you for putting up with it so we could have a place to get together.

I'm in the middle of getting a new job and if I get it I have to move to within an hour of the base office. Meaning Brighton or further east (Base office being in Brush). If I buy in Brighton/Lochbouie You are all welcome to come to my house and wrench in the f ing front yard if you so please I don't care. I want a place with like 5-20 Acres so you can get drunk have a good time (just don't drive after). And Molly you can cook with my Andrea anytime.

Yeah in many ways I am surprised they haven't said anything about Tippy being on the street in the same place (parked backwards) for over 2 months. In the interest of avoiding a ticket I think next time we have some of you around we need to turn her around!

Oh and for those who think I'm an alcoholic for drinking at 7am.... I work nights and it sucks trying to get to sleep when the sun is up and shinning in your face and the neighbors are stomping on my ceiling and..... and ....
